An animal welfare group held a protest in Bromley High Street to raise the issue of dairy cows on Saturday.
Passive Pressure, based in Bromley, gave out more than a thousand leaflets to passers-by in the street.
Sara Charania, from Bromley, said: “Everyone was quite responsive and a lot of questions were asked.
“We felt like we did some great work.”
Five representatives of the Passive Pressure group, put on cow masks - to represent the diary cows - “to dispel the myth of contentment” amongst the animals.
Ms Charania, who became a vegan 18 months ago in protest over diary farming, said: “It’s time to see diary milk for what it is - breast milk of another species meant for their newborns.
“People can only ever consume cow’s milk, organic or not, if the calf is removed.
“The main message of the day was to make the public aware of how hard the diary cow works.”
